  • The generalized use of integrated magnetics and zero-ripple techniques in switchmode power converters

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):15 - 33
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3824 KB)

    Methods are presented that allow the discrete transformers and inductors of switchmode power converters to be unified in single magnetic structures. It is demonstrated that unified magnetics and zero ripple operation are general phenomena applicable to all types of switchmode power converters. View full abstract»

  • New lossless turn-on and turn-off (snubber) networks for inverters, including circuits for blocking voltage limitation

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):34 - 41
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1299 KB)

    Transistorized pulse width modulated (PWM) inverters require careful dimensioning of turn-on and turn-off circuits in order to minimize the switching loss in the power transistors. The paper describes new lossless circuits. Especially the turn-off circuits show a highly reduced part count as compared to circuits known from the literature. Also the turn-on circuits apply energy recovery. Furthermor... View full abstract»

  • A snubber configuration for both poker transistors and GTO PHH inverters

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):42 - 53
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3886 KB)

    A snubber is a set of components which reduce the stresses on the power semiconductors during switching intervals and transients. A snubber configuration is presented which is especially suited for bridge connected, pulse width modulated OC to OC, OC to AC or AC to DC converters with either transistors or GTOs as the switching elements. The snubber gives both turn-on and turn-off switching stress ... View full abstract»

  • High-voltage high-frequency class-E converter suitable for miniaturization

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):54 - 61
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2268 KB)

    A 120 V mains driven class-E converter used as an electronic ballast for a 15 W fluorescent lamp is presented. The key element of the circuit is a cascoded BIMOS switch which ensures high-voi tage and high-frequency capability. In spite of the high switching frequency of 450 kHz an excellent efficiency of 91% could be achieved. Thus miniaturization becomes feasible. View full abstract»

    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1108 KB)

    Class-E dc/dc converters can operate at high switching frequencies with very low switching power losses. Using commercially available power transistors and diodes, Class-E converters can operate at switching frequencies in the low-MHz range, with efficiencies of about 85%. Previous papers dealt with the circuit parameter values needed to obtain high-efficiency operation and output-voltage regulati... View full abstract»

  • High efficiency PWM bridge inverter using single high frequency switch

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):72 - 80
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3044 KB)

    A PWM bridge inverter is proposed which employs only two choppers, one operating at the PWM frequency, the other at twice the fundamental frequency. This results in high efficiency and reliability, reduced losses, weight, size and circuit complexity. Circuit operation is discussed and a thyristor implementation is described. Design criteria and experimental results are given. View full abstract»

  • Dynamic performance of the static var control system employing the alternative twelve pulse arrangement

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):83 - 91
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1107 KB)

    Dynamic performance of a static var compensator (SVC) employing the alternative twelve pulse arrangement is studied in order to investigate the practical usefulness of this new scheme. The power circuit, the control system and their interaction are modelled by digital simulation. Dynamic response of a conventional SVC is simulated for comparison. View full abstract»

    A step-up converter circuit for the sinusoidal line current rectification at a unity power factor is described. A Bipolar-Static-Induction-Transitor (B-SIT) with extremely fast switching times is utilized. The gate drive and the snubber circuits are presented. A new way to achieve current hysteresis control without noise problems for switching frequencies up to 100 kHz is developed. Measured overa... View full abstract»

    A new method of power pulse modulation with internal frequencies of tens of kHz and suited for multikilowatt power levels is applied to a series-resonant converter system for generating synthesized unipolar and bipolar waveforms. The high pulse frequency allows the principle of modulation and demodulation to be applied for fast system response, output waveforms with low distortion and prevents exc... View full abstract»

    A new parallel running system of GTO PWM inverters is proposed to achieve a high reliability and large capacity inverter system. In the system, a separate control circuit with a local processing unit is used for each inverter to prevent total system breakdown. A dc power source is also separated for each inverter. A circulating current which is caused by frequency differences of the oscillators in... View full abstract»
